Thank You for getting back to me,
I've printed an image from paint and it looks pretty good, it looks like as you suggested that the problem is within photoshop cs6
Where do I go from here, Photoshop is the main programme that I use for editing and hopefully printing?
I have been using icc profiles for the papers that I'm trying to use but I will try the site you posted here, I using windows 8
Downloading the new profiles made no difference, I don't know how I can change the printer driver settings, is that done from the printing menu where you select size & paper, I tried changing colour settings in there and also colour settings in ps to no avail.
I was presented with the same icc profiles as was in printer menu, I tried adobe RGB which is the same as ps, no change, I tried the monitor profile still no change. When I open the print dialogue to print I'm presented with a thumbnail of the image which looks fine but when I select print the print preview changes completely and prints the changes
I have been following all these guidelines on your recommended page and they are exactly as I was using, still everything changes when I press print (thank god for the preview page or I'd be out of paper and ink)
I've tried so many different ways to get the a print similar to the monitor it just defies belief.
what I cannot understand is how the thumbnail looks like the screen image and select print and changes so drastically
not getting the option to disable cm, have to select one in the drop down menu.
Russell I know that your giving me your best and it's a tricky field, but I seem no closer to solving my problem, I'm just wasting ink, paper & time I'm frustrated to say the least any way I'm taking a break from it now I'm just wasted. I will give you a fair rating,
